Reintroducing the Student Story Writers
Four years ago I reached out to a few students and asked them to write for a new Student Stories feature on the blog. I ask these volunteers to write four posts each year, mostly on topics of their choosing. Not all quite meet the mark, but I understand that it can be hard to take time to write a post while also writing for so many other classroom-related purposes. I try not to assign subjects for their posts. Rather, they write about topics of importance or interest to them. Because the spring always brings new readers, I want to reintroduce each of the students who have contributed their stories.
This year’s writers are:
Adnan: first-year MALD student from Pakistan
McKenzie: first-year MIB student
Tatsuo: first-year MALD student from Japan
Aditi: second-year MALD student from India
Alex: second-year MIB student
Ali: second-year MIB student, who originally applied through Fletcher’s Map Your Future pathway to admission
And, on a time-available basis, Roxanne, F14, will write about her experiences with the PhD program, having previously written about her two years in the MALD program.
Previous year’s writers were:
Maliheh, F13, MALD
Mirza, F14, MALD
Scott, F14, MIB
Diane, F15, MALD
Liam, F15, MALD
Mark, F15, MIB
And in the first year of this fledgling effort, I also included a first-year graduate, Manjula, who gave me the idea to create Student Stories, which then led to the posts from First-Year Alumni. I hope you’ll enjoy scrolling through and reading about their Fletcher experiences.
